Song Lyric Sunday – Count On Me by Bruno Mars

I’m not huge into Bruno Mars these days, but after looking up a few songs for this week’s theme, I ran across this song and remembered how much I love it.  I definitely enjoyed his first CD a lot and his second not quite as much, but I still like both of them more than what  he’s doing now.  The guy can sing, there’s not doubt, and this song is just simple goodness.

I haven’t had a lot of really close friends in my life, but I hope those whom I do consider friends know that I will always be there, no matter what.

I hope you enjoy!

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea,
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see,
I’ll be the light to guide you

Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Whoa, whoa
Oh, oh
Yeah, yeah

If you tossin’ and you’re turnin’ and you just can’t fall asleep
I’ll sing a song
Beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Everyday I will
Remind you

Ooh
Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Oh, oh
Yeah, yeah

You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry
I’ll never let go
Never say goodbye
You know you can

Count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
And you’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Oh, oh
You can count on me ’cause I can count on you

  1. I liked early Bruno Mars on a hit-or-miss level but like you, his newer stuff just doesn’t do it for me admittedly. I’ve always found this song powerful though. I’m mostly a loner myself but for the few friends I do have I’m loyal almost to a fault.
